Invesco Defensive Equity ETF

Ticker: DEF

Product Details

The Invesco Defensive Equity ETF (Fund) is based on the Invesco Defensive Equity Index (Index). The Fund will invest at least 80% of its total assets in securities that comprise the Index. The Index is designed to provide exposure to securities of large-cap US issuers. The Index uses a rules-based approach to select companies that potentially have superior risk-return profiles during periods of stock market weakness while still offering the potential for gains during periods of market strength. The Index is computed using the gross total return, which reflects dividends paid. The Fund and the Index are rebalanced quarterly.

Open-end mutual funds and exchange-traded funds are considered a single population for comparison purposes. Ratings are calculated for funds with at least a three year history. The overall rating is derived from a weighted average of three-, five- and 10-year rating metrics, as applicable, excluding sales charges and including fees and expenses. ©2022 Morningstar Inc.

The top 10% of funds in a category receive five stars, the next 22.5% four stars, the next 35% three stars, the next 22.5% two stars and the bottom 10% one star. Ratings are subject to change monthly. Had fees not been waived and/or expenses reimbursed currently or in the past, the Morningstar rating would have been lower. Ratings for other share classes may differ due to different performance characteristics.

Fund performance reflects applicable fee waivers, absent which, performance data quoted would have been lower. After Tax Held and After Tax Sold are based on NAV. Returns less than one year are cumulative.

 Risk & Other Information

Typically, security classifications used in calculating allocation tables are as of the last trading day of the previous month.

There are risks involved with investing in ETFs, including possible loss of money. Shares are not actively managed and are subject to risks similar to those of stocks, including those regarding short selling and margin maintenance requirements. Ordinary brokerage commissions apply. The Fund’s return may not match the return of the Underlying Index. The Fund is subject to certain other risks. Please see the current prospectus for more information regarding the risk associated with an investment in the Fund.

Investments focused in a particular industry or sector are subject to greater risk, and are more greatly impacted by market volatility, than more diversified investments.

The Fund is non-diversified and may experience greater volatility than a more diversified investment.

The fund may engage in frequent trading of its portfolio securities in connection with the rebalancing or adjustment of the Underlying Index.

The Fund seeks to track a quantitative strategy index, which invests in securities comprising an index created by a proprietary quantitative model. The Fund’s return depends on the effectiveness of the model and factors used in the model’s quantitative analysis and the weightings may not accurately predict a security’s value. As a result, the Fund may have a lower return than if it tracked an index based on a fundamental investment strategy, or that did not incorporate quantitative analysis.

The Global Industry Classification Standard was developed by and is the exclusive property and a service mark of MSCI, Inc. and Standard & Poor's.

The Sabrient Defensive Equity Index is composed of stocks selected from a broad universe of US stocks and American depositary receipts (ADRs), based on their risk-return profiles during periods of stock market weakness and return potential during periods of market strength.
